This is a set of hands-on multiplication puzzles that reinforce basic multiplication concepts. These are great to use in a math center or even send home as a homework activity.

Each puzzle starts with a story problem in the center. Students find the corresponding side pieces with the matching array, equal groups model, repeated addition equation, and multiplication equation. When fit together, the pieces form a square.

Includes 10 puzzles plus a student worksheet. The worksheet allows students to create their own story problem with side pieces just like the puzzles.
